The golfer, who had been candid about his mental health struggles, was reportedly discovered lying lifeless in his bedroom.

The athlete’s parents confirmed on Sunday that their son had ended his own life.

“We have spent the last 24 hours trying to come to terms with the fact that our son is gone. It’s surreal that we not only have to admit it to ourselves, but that we also have to acknowledge it to the world. It’s a nightmare,” Murray’s parents said in a statement posted by the PGA Tour. “We have so many questions that have no answers. But one. Was Grayson loved? The answer is yes. By us, his brother Cameron, his sister Erica, all of his extended family, by his friends, by his fellow players and – it seems – by many of you who are reading this.”

Murray gained attention in the world of golf at a young age when he made his first cut on the developmental Korn Ferry Tour at just 16. He went on to win three consecutive Junior World Championships from 2006-08.

He turned professional in 2015 and won two PGA Tour titles, the first in 2017. This past season, he achieved a career high of 46th in world rankings.

Murray’s caddie, Jay Green, expressed deep sorrow over his friend’s passing, saying, “He truly would do anything for anyone. He has the best family, and my heart goes out to them. We will all miss him deeply.”
